McManus i-.->r' J BASEBALL BOXING RACING SPORT HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING Unto Us Is Born a Golfer -- -l!iyor and to assist him in every way possible to le.irn tho game; tho experienced player loses nothing by doing -so, and the learner, as a rule, appreciates tho hints given him. Often have I been asRed the question, "What is in the game of goif that makes the players so enthusiastic over it?" Bsing a cautious Scot, I have generally answered by asking if ho or she-for ladies as well as gentlemen have asked the question-has ever played, and as 1 well know that> their reply would be in the. negative, 1 always advised them to play a few games and they would soon find out. I am well aware that to the average spectator wlio does not understand the game; it may and does appear so simple and easy that they have the idea that there is nothing to, it, nothing exciting in it. to enthuse over. They think anybody could hit a small ball a few yards into a hole; just an old man's "game. Old man's game? Yes, but not In the way they mean, for it is about the only out-of-door game played that I know which old as well as young men play and enjoy. 1 have played on courses where 1 have seen youths 17 to iO and old men, well over the allotted span of three score and ten years, following oach other, and in their own way enjoying their games. Meet these players after they have played their daily round, as I have often done, and listen to their, discussions of the various incidents that have happened. If it had not been for tho easy putt missed on tho last green, and being hunkered at the far out hole with a perfect mashie pitch, and topping the, drive at the 7th teo where you cros.s the burn, whet wonderful scores would have been made; Ell records would have sure been broken and such great exponents of the game as .laniie Braid, Harry Vardon or Sandy Herd, were hardly considered in their class. It is the "Ifs' that make all the difference between a good round and a, bad one. I derstand. and know wl'.nt results you can gel with them, you will be surprised how soon you will bo able to return a respectable card. Never miss an opportunity of playing with a player better than yourself, yet don't play too often witli the same player unless ho.is'rauch'better than you are. Watch closely how ho plays every .shot and practice them later. It not likely you will play them so well, but it will help much to im-provo your game. Remember when playing to keep your eye on the ball, hit easy, and don't press to get distance. That will come in good time. Try to hit every shot true and keep a good line, it will save you a lot ot unnecessary \Valking over tho course- BASEBA RESULTS AMERICAN Won. Lost. P.Q.

Golf, in my opinion, is not worth playing, it not done according to rule. Be a good sportsman and always play the game. Don't be like the two players who were having a friendly game. One lost his ball in tha grass, and when the five minutes were almost gone (time allowed, to find a lost ball) the loser Of'thfe ball called to his friend, "Here it is." He went over and asked where It was, when he was shown a ball lying in the grass, and told that was it. The friend looked for a few seconds and then said: 'Eh man, but you are an awful liar, for I have got your ball in ray ^pocket." Don't forget that golf is a game of honor. "Play fair and win fair" should be your motto. Next week I will write on clubs and some points in the game. ^DAVE HUME. Y�nk� Win.

There has been a lot of mystery about Cionie Tail's recent scrap with Richie Mitchell in Milwaukee, and the fans h(irdly know what to make of it. However, Tait has now given his sideVot it in a long letter to ,the Sporting Editor of the Edmbnton Journal. Here is what he says: "Well, .Mac, old boy, I am here in Minneapolis for a few days making nrrangemehts to box here tho show after MIske and Dempsey. It sure looks likq a real fight and like dompsoy'a changes as I saw him box a few times in his training quartora aiJd- he certainly 1,8 there. They will draw a record crowd. I was supposed to. box Ritchie Mitchell again on May Ist at Milwaukee, but they postponed it as .Mitchell had his hand hurt in a bout with Solly Burns the other day. If he is not ready by the tenth I will-box either Peto Harley or Young Erne in Milwaukee on that date. In the meantime I expect to box in either' Des Mdines or AVaterloo, Iowa, as both cities have made me good offers." "In my bout with Ritchie I did not get a square deal as I was not hurt when they stopped it._^ AVas sure ready to go and was surprised when the referee declared him the winner. Everyone knows how they favor Mitchell in Milwaukee, and they will do almost anything to have him win: , Thp way it came oft was like this. I beat him all the way and was going stronger and got a little careless, and gave him a good wide opening. Ho scored a clean knockdown, catching :ne unexpectedly. He rushed me as I was getting up and did not even hit me, when the re-tereo stopped the tight. I made a fuss about it, and ho said, "Wei!, 1 tJiought you',were hurt.' The tans were not satisfied with the decision, and want us to go on again. I have all the confidence in the world, and feel sure. I can beat him. ' "Joe Prustine, the promoter, wants us to box again, as we drew a very good house, anfl will do even hotter with a return matcli. He says I can beat Mitchell as he knows what condition r was in when I boxed last. I have a floctor's certificate to show I was Jn .the hospital the day ot the bout Jind h^d.'two doctors in attendance until two hours before I entered the ring, Howcvor, tliero is no good making excuses, aild I stopped the Milwaukee papers from making raonllon ot my sickness, as it is my place- to call off fights if I am not In condition. Well,-I lost no friends in Milwaukee an4 will be much better when we fight again." '"Have met a lot ot the higii class boxers and managers and have had a couple of chances to cut in with tho real fello>^8 like Tom Andrews and Tom Jones. Andrews has too many boys and was talking to Jones, who has no lightweights at present. Jones, who formerly riian-agod such good'ones as Jess Wli-lai;d. Ad Wolgasl and other oham-pions, told tjome of tlio boys around Milwaukee that I was a comer, and ho came .^ip to see me and htid a long talk. I ;am going back to -Alilwnukoe In n)/tew days, and hava made nrrangemonts to have anothei talk with him, when 1 may be nbia to catch on under his management. Managing is harder than fighting, and a man like Jones sure can get you' where you want to be.' and you tlon't need to worry aboiit. i>ny' Olio giving you the worst of things. Jones has the reputation o^, nlwayj being able to take advantage ot th� old percentage. i 'How nro things up in * Edmon ton? AA'ould like to go bo'ck to AI' berla aonielimo in June, as il want to take a trip throughout AVestern Canada at tliat time, I wrote to Louis Scaler about it, as he said something about starting another box. ing club in either Calgary or FaI-monton.
